Certification for the Virginia Bar

*If you have not yet graduated:

The Virginia bar allows you to submit an "anticipated graduation" letter that our office will provide you.

To request this, you must submit this request form.

If you do this, you do not need to resubmit a request for a graduation certification letter. Our office will automatically do this and send it directly to the Virginia bar.

*If you have already graduated:

Email your request to registrationservices@wcl.american.edu with your full name and AU ID (or date of birth). Our office will then send the letter directly to the Virginia bar.

Processing Policy

Due to the volume of requests, certificates are processed weekly, on Thursdays. To allow us to process bar forms as efficiently as possible, we ask that you please submit your requests before 12:00 pm (noon) on Wednesday. Requests received after 12:00 pm (noon) will be processed the following week.

Alumni: you will not be notified that your forms have been submitted. Know that we retain records that can be used later to verify that the records were sent only in response to any questions from the Bar.
